Radiology at a Glance
April 2010, Wiley-Blackwell
Radiology at a Glance:
Addresses the basic concepts of radiation physics and radiation protection together with a structured approach to image interpretation
Offers coverage of the radiology of plain X-rays, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, CT, MRI, intervention, and nuclear medicine
Presents both theory and clinical practice through theoretical and case-based chapters
Features common and classic cases in each chapter
Includes OSCE preparation and self-assessment chapters with self-test radiographs
Provides easy access tables to help assess which radiological procedures are most appropriate for specific clinical problems
Allows for quick, easy access and reference whilst on the wards
Reflects the rapidly evolving impact of interventional radiology in managing patients
Includes a Foreword by the President of the Royal College of Radiologists

"In summary, this text-book provides a low-cost and accessible guide to the radiology department that will be a vauable asset to medical students and doctors in training". (RAD Magazine, 1 January 2011)
"But all in all, this is a good introduction to radiology and suitable for the target audience. The book is also well to date in a field in rapid development." (Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association, 18 November 2010)
"Radiology at a Glance" is a user friendly revision text for medical students and students of radiography as well as of physiotherapy. The text and illustrations are of a sufficiently high standard to appeal to postgraduates studying for higher examinations and to practicing physicians. Particularly informative are the sections on classic cases in each chapter. There is a helpful chapter describing which radiological procedures are most appropriate for specific clinical problems. The chapter on nuclear medicine and the one on interventional radiology are particularly informative." (Journal of Tropical Pediatrics, October 2010)
